Learning goals for this year

hands in!

Fourth and Fifth grade will be a year full of many new adventures and challenging learning experiences that will help your child prepare for middle school.

In Reading, we will be exploring diverse literary genres and focus on skills such as comprehension, vocabulary, and critical analysis.

In Writing, we will be working on crafting
well-structured paragraphs and essays where students will become actively involved in
the steps of the writing process. In Math, we will deepen fundamental skills and understanding through hands-on stations that encourage critical thinking and problem solving.

In our collaborative environment, students will tackle group projects,
discussions, and activities that nurture communication and respectful teamwork.
